'Bike-O-Visionaries' Jan and Liz Hunter were both born in Washington D.C. and have since lived all over North America including Maryland, Virginia, California, Wisconsin, Idaho and the Virgin Islands. Since meeting and combining their talents in graphic arts, video and audio they have co-produced many works including a real estate television show called "VI Real Estate Previews" and ongoing for ten years on an ABC affiliate in the US Virgin Islands. They've also created art instruction videos, graphic arts projects, music CDs, cinema and television advertising, and many projects in the fields of art, music and video.

Since 2004 they have immersed themselves in the creation and perfection of the Bike-O-Vision cycling video series. They handle all facets of the production from planning and travel arrangements to the shooting, editing and dvd authoring and on through the marketing and public relations process. They enjoy the enthusiasm of their audience toward such an interactive experience “... we always welcome feedback!”, says Jan. In fact it has been user input that has continued to help make the “journeys”, as each disc is called, as popular as they are today, twelve years after they were first introduced in the Christmas edition of the Wall Street Journal.
Liz enjoys the traveling aspect of these productions and says, “I’m excited to be producing a product that is not only fun to use but has very positive health benefits for people.” Besides her work with cycling videos, she also enjoys creating culinary delights such as her latest batch of peach chutney, and helping international causes such as The Earth Organization, Youth for Human Rights and Citizens Commission on Human Rights. Jan enjoys reading, board sports and recording music. They currently reside in the North Bay area of California with other family nearby, about which they say "... [its] a great home-base- and so near to some of our favorite locations to film more video”. Many of these areas can be seen in California Wine Country, Napa Sonoma Wine Country, California Coast, California's Pacific Coast Highway and San Francisco Bay. Meanwhile, the future looks front-lit as they plan to continue traveling the planet in search of those amazing country roads winding through gorgeous scenery.
